I need to share the great and unhealthy of life and all the pieces in between. Once I first began running a blog nearly 7 years in the past I wished it to be extra private than a recipe website with a cookbook and at all times trustworthy. So right here I’m with the great and the unhealthy, shifting home, weight and weight loss plan, household life and my psychological well being!
I’m certain you should have seen me publish on social media or point out it in different articles, however earlier this 12 months we moved home. After all, shifting home is demanding, we nonetheless have issues we have now not unpacked within the storage however principally we’re all moved in now.
I really like the brand new home, one image beneath of the surface earlier than we had the entrance backyard finished (footage right here of the brand new backyard). This picture was taken on the day we bought the keys so we have now modified lots inside too and I have to take tons extra footage and share these quickly.
It could be after a cleansing day although that I take the photographs if I took pictures now you’ll see all kinds of random muddle dotted round!
I really like being within the new home, we have now more room than we did earlier than, I’ve my very own workplace to work from and I’ve cherished the contemporary begin a brand new home brings.
Somebody requested me the opposite day if I used to be nonetheless with Stuart and it occurred to me that I don’t discuss him usually. There isn’t a actual cause as to why I don’t, it’s simply the best way issues occur however sure we’re nonetheless collectively and actually glad.
Fathers’ day yesterday was a stunning household day. I at all times discover it exhausting as by no means had a relationship with my dad and am not massively near my stepdad.

As you’ll be able to see I’m not skinny anymore. I’ve put weight on over the previous couple of years or so and I’m again to having two chins (possibly extra) and bingo wings.
